Can a system recording be downloaded? I don’t see a way to. I have a customer that frequently asks to have their lengthy directory prompt re-recorded. Last week I recorded the directory as a message in my voicemail box and downloaded that, renamed it accordingly. Uploaded it to the system recording. Today already the customer asked for a change, a name/dept/ext. to be removed. I used an audio editor to remove the phrase and uploaded it. Saved a lot of time since I’m particular with how the recording sounds and usually need a few takes. If someone is added, I’ll record that information as a message, download it and insert it into the file and upload it.
System recordings can be downloaded from /var/lib/asterisk/sounds.
System Recording are available for those using ‘en’ as your language at
(I don’t think you can download them through the GUI though, scp or rsync are your friends)
Ok thanks - was going to ask where they could be found.
It should be noted that although that is the location opf your ‘custom recordings’ , adding files arbitrarily there will not cause them to be apparent in the GUI. Re-referencing the pointed to file name will however be effective.
Probably then best to add them back in via the GUI. Still, saves a lot of time. I used a basic free editor.
You don’t need to ‘add them back’, you can just replace the apropos ‘named recording’ with your updated one , (no GUI needed) , if you have previously ‘saved’ a system recording called topmenu.wav, then
cp /wherever/I/processed/it/mynewrecording.wav /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en/custom/topmenu.wav
is all you need to do
Something that seems to bite me from time to time is also making sure of ownership/permissions on the file(s) as well.
Noted - thanks.
